HOUSTON and PRAGUE, May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kraton Performance Polymers, Inc. (NYSE: KRA), a leading global producer of styrenic block copolymers, specialty polymers and high-value performance products derived from pine wood pulping co-products, announces plans to exhibit at the 6th Eurasphalt & Eurobitume Congress from June 1st – 3rd, 2016. Kraton will have two locations in the Prague Congress Centre in the Czech Republic. Booths 60-62 will feature HiMA, highly modified asphalt, which is used to solve a variety of challenges in asphalt pavements through a combination of rutting resistance and cracking resistance. Booths 12-13 will feature the technology of Arizona Chemical, a Kraton company. Arizona Chemical's SYLVAROAD RP1000 Performance Additive enables a step change in the amount of recycled asphalt in the paving mix and boosts the performance of these mixes so that they can also be used in surface and binder layers.
Kraton and Arizona Chemical scientists will present technical papers at the congress:
- Paper 116: "Laboratory Evaluation of Emissions from Asphalt Binder and Mixes Using a Bio-Rejuvenating Agent." Laurent Porot, Arizona Chemical
Thursday, June 2nd, 2 – 3:30 p.m., North Hall
